Glob Is Blog Spelled Backwards

Okay yeah, so I'm posting a lot this week. I feel like my mother, rediscovering the internet thanks to Rob Witmer, in exchange for a hot meal and some fresh laundry. Long story. Suffice it to say this whole blog thing is still fresh and new to me, and I don't know what to do with it. Should I:

Reminisce about all the amazingly mediocre meals I had, served with casual annoyance, at Bimbo's Band Member Kitchen? Or reflect upon that one time I actually went into Kingcora (sp?) to meet a friend, only to realize some time later that we were meeting at Bill's, thereby officially keeping my streak of not purchasing a drink from that bar intact? Oh, the halcyon days of East Pine! I did have a nice time at Pony once.

Pick a frustration that concerns me and very few others and complain at length about it? Why does the water cooler take so long to fill my Nalgene bottle? Or is there a state law that requires all garbage trucks to visit dumpsters before 8am? Oh, the halcyon days of earlier this week! I did have a nice time cleaning the rehearsal space last night.

Make a blog post about nothing at all, criticizing blogs and my inability to think about something creative to write? Oh, here's a funny list of things I could write about in this blog! Oh, the halcyon seconds of minutes ago! Oh no, I'm so self-referential that I'm writing myself out of existen

Sounds like you've answered your own questions.
That's some sexy blogging.

Kincora. I played several shows there with St. Bushmill's Choir, including a memorable New Year's show where the place was packed to the gills and beer was flying everywhere. I tried to go there last night, but it seems like the whole block is officially shut down. Over at the Six Arms, a huge plate glass window got smashed at about 11:30. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but the police and fire were there.

"this whole blog thing is still fresh and new to me, and I don't know what to do with it."

So here's what I think, as a partial un-observer:

your best entries are the ones where you've written about the moments during shows that most people don't notice or get to see.

I also enjoyed the serial about the loan officer and have been looking foward to another installment.
